EZkeys Grand Piano from Toontrack is both a plug-in and standalone instrument that combines a piano player, songwriting partner, arranger and a sampled grand piano in a single package. The software ships with an extensive MIDI library performed by a professional session pianist. From simple to complex, full eight bar song sections cover all the major genres such as Rock, Pop, Country, Gospel, Blues and Funk.

Creating the foundation of a track is as simple as dragging and dropping sections. The software then immediately analyzes and separates all chords. If you click any of the blocks, an intuitive chord circle will open. This function allows you to transpose or alter any chord or a full song on the fly, and works both with the included MIDI as well as user imported files.

EZkeys Grand Piano features a sampled Steinway model D grand piano, originally recorded in a world-class recording studio, using vintage and modern recording gear. Additionally, the sounds were mixed to sit perfectly in a production environment without any additional tweaking. A selection of ready-made and user controllable presets provide endless editing options if required.

Presets
Signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud
Effects used range from reverb to tape simulation and distortion
You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters
  • Standard - default sound. A very rich and fresh tone that will work perfectly in any type of contemporary pop/rock, country or classical composition - customize the level of room reverb and compression by tweaking the controls
  • Raw Tweaks - true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording - adjust the level of hammer, sustain pedal and releases as well as detune the piano
  • Swedish Jazz - plate reverb subtly blended with that mellow tone that will give the sound that characteristic, warm feel used on a lot of the classic jazz records
  • Retro Space Ballad - spring reverb blended with a fast repeating tape delay delivers a great retro feel
  • Swedish Pop - chorus based preset that also includes a spring reverb for that 70's Swedish pop sound
  • Old Time Boogie - distorted through a 15 ips tape machine and with the addition of a spring reverb as well as a tape slap delay, this preset represents the vintage sound reminiscent of the dirty recordings of the 60's
  • On Stage - optimized to add extra presence in a stage monitor
  • Drive In Cabinet - piano is going through a speaker cabinet and hitting distortion on the way
  • Electric Dirt - going through a guitar amplifier with a distortion pedal and a spring reverb, this preset is great as a solo sound or for long swelling chords
  • Grand Tremolo - tremolo based preset with options for tape delay, spring reverb as well as tremolo speed and depth
  • Atmospheric Depth - classic piano tone blended with a pad-like sound for the typical dreamy, contemporary ballad sound
  • Dreamscapes - perfect for long swelling chords and atmospheric ambience
  • Dreampads - builds on the same fundamental idea as the Dreamscapes preset, but adds a slightly different flavor
